“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars.” – Les Brown
Have you ever looked at yearbook and you felt like “Gosh, I shouldn’t have written that”. The sad news is that there is no way to correct this and you just totally hate the whole yearbook because of that one mistake? You know that your yearbook is personal to you. This is because it conveys your experiences and personality while in school or in a particular social group. That moment when you are unable to connect to your yearbook, it becomes any other yearbook, right?
What about if there is a way to edit and update the information in your year book to make it reflect your new self and at the same time you are able to share it to your famiIy, friends or anyone you want to and at the same time having full control over who view your yearbook? I have always wanted this freedom and I know that you also want to experience it too. So, I found a solution to this in terms of a new startup called Throne of Pals.

As an administrator of the yearbook, you have complete control over your yearbook. You can manage the yearbook by approving the “join request” of members into your yearbook. Throne of Pals is patterned after regular yearbook you are used to. The only difference is that Throne of Pals is cloud based and you have all the rights to control the number of people in your yearbook. You are should know every member that has a right to a page in your yearbook so as to give your yearbook all the privacy and members only access.
The process of joining your yearbook or another yearbook on Throne of Pals is similar to the the signup process. To setup your page in your yearbook, you need to input some details about yourself.
Every users of your yearbook can build their profiles to their taste. Unlike the traditional yearbook that is so rigid where just fill a form which can’t be edited once it is in print, Throne of Pals give you the freedom to edit, update and delete your data.
For example, if you want everyone that check on your page to know that your “Best Lecturer” is “Dr. Saka”, you fill in the data accordingly as shown:
This is how this information is displayed on your page to other members of your yearbook that flips to your page by clicking on your name.
After a while, you might want to edit or update your “Best Lecturer” to be “Dr. Akinwumi” for reasons known to you, you just need to go back to your page and edit that specific data and click on the update button. And perhaps you feel that you no longer want a “Best Lecturer”, you can as well delete it altogether as shown below.
You can also upload your pictures on your page so that I can recognize you 😜.
Sure, you had some group picture, from fresh men days all the through final year defense till convocation, some of us even bump into one another and just do the selfie thing, these pictures are just too emotional to be owned by one/some. We had that in mind too, that’s where we created a Gallery were any member of the yearbook can update those pictures that relieve your good moments together and thus making them live on.
